Piano sales have been very strong recently, which is encouraging as the economy transitions. Customers ask about the "NEARLY NEW" description of the pianos I am selling.

Like new automobiles, all brand new pianos depreciate very quickly from the showroom price tag, then their real value is stable for many years. I search out the pianos from the finest piano makers that are NEARLY NEW. The Yamaha and Kawai pianos I list as NEARLY NEW represent a terrific financial and musical investment. These pristine condition pianos when you see them, you will agree, look and sound in every respect as new. Mechanically and structurally they are in excellent condition. Because I buy in quantity from my wholesaler in Japan, I am able to pass on these substantial savings to my customers.

Here are some examples of the great savings to be had from buying a NEARLY NEW piano from Martin Snow Pianos. The tallest Yamaha upright is the 53" tall model U3 which currently has a suggested new retail price of $16,000. My NEARLY NEW price for the U3 which includes delivery, new piano bench, 5 year warranty, and the first in home complementary piano tuning is $5100.

The savings are even greater for the grand pianos. A very popular mid-size Yamaha grand piano is the 5'8" model, which has a suggested new retail price of $35K. My NEARLY NEW price for this piano is $11,900. The 6'1" Yamaha grand piano has a suggested new retail price of $47K. My NEARLY NEW price: $14,900. The 6'7" Yamaha grand piano has a suggested new retail price of $50K. My NEARLY NEW price: $15,900. Many local area churches have purchased this model grand piano for their sanctuary performance piano.

There are similar savings at Martin Snow Pianos for Kawai upright and grand pianos. This is a well respected piano company that also manufactures a line of pianos called the Boston for the Steinway Piano Co.

These high quality pianos will enable the piano player in your family to make all the musical progress from their practice commitment.

I also have a smaller inventory of restored pianos, usually Steinway, Baldwin and Mason & Hamlin. Please call to check for current inventory of these pianos.

Your First Piano

Sometimes the price of pianos may seem a little intimidating, especially if, as a parent, you are not sure how long your child will continue to play. A much better alternative than purchasing a keyboard, or searching Craigslist for a piano with no warranty or follow up service, are the console and spinet pianos I am now selling at the store.

These pianos have all been thoroughly checked over and tuned, and are priced between $1300 and $1900. The price includes delivery to your home, 5 year warranty, a matching piano bench and the first complimentary piano tuning. If you decide to upgrade your piano in the future, I offer a trade-in, if the piano is purchased at my store.

Best Sellers

The Yamaha and Kawai pianos are best-sellers again this year. Parents are thrilled to hear the positive springboard effect a good instrument has upon their child's playing. These instruments have a terrific sound with an even and consistent action response—essential as the student progresses to more challenging pieces, enabling them to musically interpret the dynamics demanded by both the composer and teacher. Many schools, including the Brookline Music School and the South Shore Conservatory have chosen these pianos to upgrade their inventory.

Yamaha and Kawai pianos are applauded by musicians and piano teachers for their superior quality, and consistently rate at the highest level by independent piano technicians. Yamahas & Kawais at Martin Snow Pianos Yamahas & Kawais at Martin Snow Pianos Yamahas & Kawais at Martin Snow Pianos

The upright pianos that I sell are the 48-inch studio model, and the 53-inch full concert upright. Remember, the taller an upright piano, the more potential for better sound, because within this cabinet a larger sounding board and a longer string can be installed. These uprights and baby grands are in pristine condition. Most were manufactured in the 1990s. They have been thoroughly inspected, tuned, and regulated. The cabinets have either been repolished or refinished. Most of the cabinets are ebony, but mahogany and walnut are sometimes available.

With any piano that I sell, the price includes a new bench and all delivery charges. I will tune the piano prior to delivery, and I offer a warranty tuning within the first six months. The piano is under a full warranty for five years.

Prices

  • Kawai and Yamaha uprights range in price from $4500 to $5400. These same pianos new retail for between $9900 and $15,000.
  • Yamaha and Kawai baby grands start at $10,000.
